Israeli Hacker Counterstrike on Arab Sites
An Israeli hacker team called "IDF Team" succeeded Thursday in temporarily disabling the website of the Iranian English language television station, and of the Teheran Health Ministry. The sites were hacked at about 4:30 p.m. Israel time and were operational again about one hour later.
The attack was in retaliation for Muslim hackers' attacks yesterday that hit the Haaretz news website, the Dan bus company, Assuta Hospital and the Cinematheque.
The team reportedly brought down the Saudi Arabian Stock Exchange website, and the United Arab Emirates stock exchange website, nine days ago. That attack was in retaliation for Muslim hackers' attacks that disabled the websites of Israeli banks and of El Al.
The team posted a warning that read: "If the lame attacks from Saudi Arabia will continue, we will move to the next level which will disable these sites longer term [sic] may come to weeks or even months. You have been warned."
